Brückner ranked 15th best soccer coach so far this century
The International Federation of Football History & Statistics has named the former Czech Republic boss Karel Brückner as the 15th best trainer of the 21st century. Brückner led the Czechs to three major international tournaments in a row, a feat achieved by no other manager, with the most successful being Euro 2004, when they lost in the semi-finals to eventual winners Greece. He shares 15th spot with former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola. Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson topped the poll.
